Bandy hearing delayed

The sentencing of Matthew Bandy on numerous parole violations has been delayed to allow the 43-year-old man to pursue cases related to his medical problems, lawyers said Wednesday.

A new hearing has been set for 1:30 p.m., Feb. 24, Deputy District Attorney Clifford Newell said.

Bandy is in custody at Wayne Brown Correctional Facility after a December arrest for being under the influence of methamphetamine. He has been arrested eight times in nearly two years on parole violations relating to a 2000 drug arrest.

The Grass Valley man has medical issues stemming from a serious motorcycle accident and a job-related injury, both of which occurred in 2004, Bandy told The Union.

Bandy is pursuing a workman’s compensation claim and a personal injury suit in an effort to fund treatment for those injuries, his lawyer, Gregory Klein of Nevada City, said.

Also Wednesday, Bandy asked Judge John Darlington to set bail in his case so he can get out of jail to make arrangements for his possessions. Darlington, who supervised Bandy during a successful two-year stint in Drug Court before the current troubles started, took the motion under consideration.
